wore a jason wu dress as she did four years ago? >> i was gobsmacked. she has a tendency to spread the love around. one of the things that is distinctive about her is that she hasn't settled in with one designer and become associated with one brand. what she did for him was really quite extraordinary. she elevated him from near anonymity into a household name. in some ways, i think it was a bit of a safer choice because there is so much pressure on an inaugural gown to be this extraordinarily symbolic dress. i think she felt comfortable going back to someone who had done right by her. >> earlier in the day she had worn a dress and a coat by thom browne and has probably changed the arc of his career. >> if i was gobsmacked by jason wu, i was stunned by browne. he really comes from the men's wear part of the business. the stuff that he puts on the runway is incredibly high concept. it is out there. >> fashion forward as they say. >> out there. >> out there. >> that's the technical term for it. the fact that she could, or her emissary could decipher that and find the real clothes in t
it will be a bit more subdued from last time. >> that was a jason wu dress. >> it was the white jason wu dress. >> many designers people didn't know. do you think that's something she takes into account, that ability she has to give somebody a name? is she trying to spread the wealth a little bit to other designers? >> yeah. i think she's very smart in that she hasn't attached her name to one particular design house. and she has also, i think, recognized that the fashion industry is not just about the giant corporations. it's about small business owners. it's about female entrepreneurs. it's about young, immigrant entrepreneurs. and that really comes through on her choices. >> she does seem to try to do a mix of the everyday designers that any of us could have access to, and some of the higher end ones as well. >> absolutely. >> it's always good to have you here. thank you so much. >> my pleasure. >>> coming up next, small town letter that made a big impression on president obama. what he wrote back right after this. miss, this seat's available. (sighs) this is too good to be true. hi. john st
you that the first lady's gown is by jason wu, and her shoes are by jimmy choo. i know i sound ridiculous saying that, but you know you wanted to hear it. this ball is specifically for members of the united states military and their families. it is a tradition that was started under president george w. bush. they have expand it this year to be larger than it has ever been. it's essentially doubled in size. there are two official inaugural balls, two only in washington tonight. one of them is the commander in chief ball. and the other of them is the other official inaugural ball. thanks for being with us on what is kind of a big day in washington. you know the basics of what happened today. church service at st. john's house near the white house. the president goes from the white house then to the capitol, then he is sworn in at the capitol on the west front. and that is the spot from which president obama today delivered his second inaugural address. well will have much more on all of that coming up this hour. but here is the moment from today. the moment that i want to show yo
at these incredible pictures of her wearing that jason wu gown from the first inauguration. >> of course. >> night here in '09. what about her ball gown designer? any ideas on who she might be wearing this time around? >> well, you know, she made such a statement with that gown. i mean, to wear white certainly at that time of year, the bear shoulders. it was startling and, of course, put jason wu on the map. and -- but the economy, we've had a tough four years. and she's known for wearing her fashions over and over again. i wonder whether she'll make a fashion statement and wear a dress she's already worn. >> now that would be a big statement because she certainly hasn't been afraid to do that before. >> exactly. >> let me ask you about something from back from 2008. she wore this lemongrass-colored outfit designed by a cuban american designer actually, isabelle toledo. was that a good choice do you think? is that a good dress for her? >> you know, it was funny because a lot of people had a lot to say about there particular outfit. you know, it was her first term as first lady, as well. and you're
can wear anything from target to talbots to jason wu. but you once wrote, again, here. >> my words come back to haunt me. >> "avoiding the appearance of queenly behavior is politically wise. but it does american culture no favors if a first lady tries so hard to be average that she winds up looking common." she wore shorts. >> she was stepping off of air force one and there are like men saluting her and she was in shorts. >> that was not something that you think was appropriate. should she be more formal as a first lady? do you think she's managed to do that? >> i think early on first ladies, in general, are sort of loathe to think of themselves as sort of removed from the average person. and i think they make an effort to sort of be normal. but the reality is as soon as you step into that bubble. as soon as every picture of yourself becomes part of the public record, you're no longer just normal. so, i don't think that she, you know, that they need to avoid being queenly, necessarily. or they do need to avoid -- i don't think that they need to try so hard to be common. >> can you
